Art Alone

In the upper margin, set against an open hilly landscape with fruit trees, green grass and flowers, two women and a man are depicted drowning naked male babies in a river. The man wears a sword around his waist. An ark holding the baby Moses can be seen floating down the river on the right. The scene illustrates the verse from the Haggadah situated below, כל הבן הילוד היאורה תשליכוהו, "Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river" (Ex. 1:22). In the middle of the page, within the text space, is a partially effaced illustration. From the right, four Egyptians holding bows and arrows walk towards a group of four Israelites fleeing to the left. The figures are set against an open hilly landscape with green grass and flowers. The scene illustrates the verse from the Haggadah located below, ראיתי את הלחץ אשר מצרים לוחצים אותם, "I have seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them" (Ex. 3:9). A third scene, also partially effaced, is depicted in the bottom part of the page within the text space. A figure, possibly Moses, can be seen crossing the Red Sea which is represented by rows of blue wavy lines. The scene illustrates the opening words of the passage in the Haggadah which begins below, ויוציאנו ה' ממצרים, "And the Lord brought us out of Egypt" (Deut. 26:8).
